Two teenagers have been arrested in connection with a double shooting from over the weekend that claimed the life of an 18-year-old and critically injured a 20-year-old.  

The incident happened around 3:20 p.m. Saturday in the 1000 block of North Dupont Avenue at the Nashwood Park Apartments in Madison. 

In a Tweet Monday morning, Metro Nashville Police confirmed that two 16-year-olds, Terrence Rainey and Byron Berkley, had been arrested in the case.

 

 

Witnesses told police that three men were inside a black Infinity when two suspects went up to the car and opened fire. 

The man in the driver's seat was identified as 20-year-old Roy Hunter. The front seat passenger was 18-year-old Javonte Robinson, and an unidentified man was in the backseat. 

Both Hunter and Robinson were struck. Robinson died at the scene.

Hunter was taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center in extremely critical condition. According to reports, he is the son of Metro School Board Member Tyese Hunter.

Officials said they're still working to identify the man that had been in the car with the victims before the shooting.

Anyone with details on this crime or the identities of the suspects has been urged to call Crime Stoppers at 615-742-7463.
